Recent Purchases – Beauty

Recent Purchases - Beauty

I have not sat down in awhile to write a post so I thought why not share things I’ve purchased recently and do reviews.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream
I received this as part of my FabFitFun box. According to the description, it “delivers moisturization while maintaining a gorgeous, healthy glow.” I would agree with that. I put it on in the morning under my foundation and when I wash my face at night it still feels hydrated. Same with at night, when I wash my face in the morning I can feel the product still on my skin.

Colleen Rothschild Radiant Cleansing Balm
I saw this on IG over and over again and thought “Oh what’s the hype about” and figured I would try it for myself. It took me awhile to like it because it was SO different from my previous cleansing process. After a few weeks of using this I noticed my skin wasn’t as dry immediately after removing my makeup. I find it easiest to use this product with the muslin cloth in the shower. Otherwise I make a mess at the sink. If you aren’t willing to spend the full price, they do have a mini version.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation
Since having Baby G, my skin has
been different. I don’t know if it is hormones, age, lack of sleep or a combination of all. My go to foundation for the last couple of years has been L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro Glow, but now it rubs off or looks patchy by the end of the day. When I saw an ad for their 24-hour Infallible foundation I thought that might be what I need. Not so much. It’s a very thin formula. For good coverage I have to use double the amount of product and it doesn’t last any longer than the Pro Glow. At this point I think I will need to start spending the extra money on a more high end foundation.

Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails Gummies
Postpartum hair loss…it sucks! My hair started falling out about 6 months after Baby G was born. Right around the time my milk supply dropped and I stopped breastfeeding and pumping. Here I am 10 1/2 months postpartum and my hair is still falling out. How long does this last? I have no idea! With my hair getting thinner and thinner I knew I needed to do something. I add Vital Protein’s Collagen Peptides to my shakes (when I have time to make them), but haven’t see any changes. Probably due to lack of consistency. My sister-in-law did chemo for colon cancer and I asked if she used any products to help her hair grow back and she recommended Nature’s Bounty. So far I feel like my new growth is much more visible so I am happy with the product and will continue to use it.

That’s all for now. Being in quarantine means much less beautifying happening. I guess some people have found it a great time to test out new products, but for me, I have enjoyed doing less. Until next post…xoxo Becca

Top It Off

What better way to start the New Year than to show you my recent top purchases? Let’s start…


Merona Women’s Layering Tee

This layering tee is perfect on it’s own or paired with a vest, sweater, or just a scarf. Lightweight and comfortable. Also seen here.


Lucky Brand Long-Sleeve Brushed-Knit Cardigan

I wanted this cardigan so bad last year, but by the time I went to purchase it after Christmas it was sold out in my size. When I found it 50% off on Lucky’s website I snatched it up as quick as I could and I’m so glad I did. It’s sold out on Lucky’s website, but it’s still available at Macy’s. Feels lightweight, but this cardigan is actually really warm. Also seen here.


Mixed Media Sweatshirt Tee | Color Block Bateau Tee
Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Back Zip Tunic | Marled Two-In-One Sweater

Wore the first top to my birthday dinner and it was the perfect dress up or dress down option. The other three tops I ordered online and should be arriving this week. I’m really excited to get them because Veronika at Veronika’s Blushing did a snapchat review of the bateau tee and back zip tunic and she made me even more thrilled I placed my order when I did because I think these will go fast!

I’ve been wearing the layering tee and Lucky Brand cardigan on repeat! Lots of sales are happening this time of year so take advantage of them! Until next post…xoxo Becca
